Abstract:

The role of employed women has changed throughout the country and the world due to economic conditions and social demands. It has found in a scenario in which married employed women have tremendous pressure to develop their career as robust as their male counterparts while sustaining active engagement in personal life. Economic empowerment is the capacity of women to participate in, contribute to and benefit from growth process in ways which recognise the value of their contribution, respect their dignity and make it possible to negotiate a fairer distribution of the benefits of growth. In the economic sphere, paid employment is seen as essential to women’s empowerment which focuses on access to employment opportunities and working conditions at work place and at community level, and on a woman’s decision making power and contribution to total family earnings in the household. This paper is an attempt to know the extent of empowerment of employed women through employment. It was measured by one of the indicators of women empowerment that is “decision making”. The statistical tools used for the study and data were subjected to descriptive statistics. It also concluded that there are number of structural barriers which limit the extent of empowerment.
